Comments on: America’s secret weapon http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/2016/04/18/bill-gates-americas-secret-weapon/ Thu, 21 Jul 2016 07:57:19 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: jbeech http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/2016/04/18/bill-gates-americas-secret-weapon/#comment-1130208 Sat, 30 Apr 2016 22:09:45 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/?p=47561#comment-1130208 Mr. Gates,

That’s a nice sentiment but what’s the point of the letter? None of the major candidates is against business and investment (unless Senator Sanders’ long shot comes true and the Secretary is indicted). And in the unlikely event the good Senator from VT were to become the Democratic nominee – and win – his recent experience managing a campaign, as well as the details like hiring and firing, and dealing with real money has likely proven to be an eye opener. At least with respect to his views on socialism. Thus, I am seeking to learn the reason behind your otherwise very nice open letter, with this query.

Cheers,
John Beech

It does little good when the company then just makes all its goods overseas, and hides all its capital in fake Cayman Islands banks. Apple is the richest company in the world. It’s an “American” company. But tell me…. how many people do you know who work for Apple? How many iPhone factories in your town?

The thus far allowed comments are devoid of substance. I guess we must protect the wealthy from the intelligent.

I’d vote for you in a heartbeat
